Look kids Big Ben, Parliament...

London will host an NFL regular season game next season. The 2007 Somebody Gets Screwed Out of Home Game Bowl will mark the first time an NFL regular season game will be played outside of North America.

We hear British hooligans make Balmer Ravens fans look like choirboys. However, the folks I met at the many stateside "Wee Britains" seemed very charming (if a little slow).

Alas, she's only British on the telly.

No word on which teams will meet at Wembley Stadium. The Giants got an extra home game in September 2005 because of Hurricane Katrina, so maybe they should be one of the teams to go to across the pond. Then maybe Michael Strahan can be enshrined in the next edition of the Big Book of British Smiles.

I hear it's the Dolphins. They might as well put them in a stadium full of people. Down here lots of people go as empty seats.

Why a big picture of Strahan and a small picture of Theron?

Beckham/Posh for the Giants franchise seems like a fair trade

Captain Caveman said...

I felt the same way, hofc. It's better now.

HofC said...

Why a clothed picture of Theron?

LONDON!? FUCK!! That is like 8/9 hours travel from here. We better not get two shitey (NFC) teams otherwise I am staying at home and drinking like every other day.

Can we send them two Areana Football teams and dress them up like the Raiders and the Cardinals?

Will they know the difference?

Or just send the real the Raiders and Cardinals?

It's surprisingly hard for me to pick Mr. F out of this lineup.

Off topic... but I just turned on the Indiana/Iowa basketball game. It's turning into a rout, so naturally the announcers were talking about football. They were joking about Erin Andrews running off if Tom Brady was in attendance, upon which Erin Andrews spoke up to defend (and I quote Erin here) "Sexy Rexy". Even Miss Andrews can not resist the lure of the Sex Cannon!

I smell a Rachel Nichols/Erin Andres catfight... and it smells like victory.v

Unsilent Majority said...

they could share him

Matt said...

Someone earlier pointed out that the Sex Cannon doesn't do two girls at the same time... too much like teamwork.

Erin is a Gator alum -- she will have nothing to do with Dreamboat.

Michael knew their lawyer licenses looked fishy, but how difficult could a pre-nup be, anyway?
